PSC's predecessor has supplied the post-tensioning systems for more than half of all the post-tensioned concrete nuclear containment buildings in the United States. If we include the projects for which we have performed an in-service inspection, or the installation of other systems, PSC has been involved with more than two-thirds of all the post-tensioned containments built in the US.
Assuring public safety, complying with the Nuclear Regulatory
Commission's (NRC's) demanding regulations, and managing
operational costs place a triple burden upon utility executives
who oversee nuclear power plants. For every commercial reactor
now in operation, the need to ensure reliable service is a vital
You can be assured of meeting current NRC requirements for quality assurance by contracting PSC to perform the in-service inspections of your facility's post-tensioning systems. We inspect ungrouted tendons in containment structures according to your Final Safety Analysis Report (FSAR), and can develop a program to comply generally or specifically with the NRC's Regulatory Guide 1.35. or ASME Section XI IWL. Our quality assurance program complies with the requirements of 10CFR50 Appendix B, 10CFR21, and ANSI N45.2 as they apply to post-tensioning tendon surveillance activities.
